This is from Gekkan PC-Engine magazine 9/1991:



 Heh, with a weapon like that... it would flicker like a biatch.

Ok, so what we need is for Arky & Ye Old Geezer to finish up those AbCards, so we can put this & Marble Madness on those.....well, that, & someone to purchase this so it isn't hoarded!  I wonder if BeaglePuss knows about this! :-k

BeaglePuss is busy securing the Riftwar Saga prototype at the moment and doesn't have the $$$ to fund a Dino Force acquisition. Damn, talk about bittersweet.

After the whole Digital Press Bio Force Ape debacle, I'm always suspicious of people claiming protos..... (eat communism, indeed).


My guess is its all a hoax and someone needs kicked in the sack.

I'd be suspect of anything that doesn't say "PUSH RUN" on the title screen. Either way, simply don't care. More often then not, people who come across this stuff are never willing to dump it it seems like, because its kept as a bragging right. Due to that, I don't get my hopes up anyway.

I haven't heard anything about beaglepuss making the MM rom available, so even if he did nanage to get ahold of this, the end result would likely he the same as if any of the other collectors who buy unreleased games to keep them from being released to the public gets it.

It would be cool to play, but it is only a 4meg HuCard, so it is likely short judging by the screenshots.

I thought BeaglePuss said he was looking to make MM available in a physical form....or maybe I read too much into what he did say?

WTF is a "%100 complete alpha"?

What percentage new is that?

Usually in Alpha testing nothing appears to be complete, so who knows. Maybe he meant Beta. Maybe that's why it doesn't have "PUSH RUN" on the title screen, because midway through development they still never got around to it.

Wrong, we won't let you get away with that! 

My suggestion is to divide it into a number of pieces based on how many people put forth the funds, that'll solve everything! :D

Raffle it, or give it to the guy that dumps it. :)

I'd contribute to a kickstarter or something similar to pool funds to buy it (if it can be reasonably verified to be legit and the seller trustworthy) if it gets sent to Chris Covell to dump it and make the rom public. If he's up for it, he could possibly do the exchange in person with a PCE GT to ensure everything goes smoothly. I'd be happy with him keeping the original as well to reward him for his efforts.
